10:34 pm
last session i was here with december before we took a break. it was mentioned that if you have a two-term life here, you will spend 20 days listening to us. mathematically that adds up to one day listening the public comment and 146 days something else before the next day public comment. it is not too much of a burden. the other thing about public comment is, well back ago a gal that appeared spoke about not changing the specifics of a certain part of what we were trying to do here. and i called up the next monday to find out what she was talking about. one person that answered the phone you heard that on public comment. do not listen to public comment. we just ignore public comment. that night on national
10:35 pm
television, abc, the next morning on national television, supervisor wiener's mini housings were up. next point, talking about reading the environmental impact reports. one of the things that you won't discover on the environmental impact report is anything about noise because it is not fair. and with eight seconds left i want to thank you for the two-minute time. i look forward to spending a little bit more time with you. thank you very much. >> next speaker. >> good evening. john -- san francisco. something you might want to think about. i call it the fanaticism of
10:36 pm
the one only truth. eventually would become so passionate about the cause we no longer can think straight. it becomes our identity. we cannot afford to lose it. we do not have any other. of course one person's opinion might be another's wrong. we believe ours is the only one. and all the others are a threat and must be eliminated at all costs. there is more than one truth; each can stand on its own, does not need to be a threat to one another depending on the degree of perspective. for the universe to work that must be compromise. you have no legitimate right to
10:37 pm
have it all your own way. we call that fanaticism, that can lead to violence. thank you for listening. >> next speaker. >> i am a resident of the north market neighborhood, around city hall here. i want to welcome our two newest supervisors. and one whose district borders in my neighborhood. i hope you do well with it. the previous resident was supervisor avalos. i do represent -- i try to work with the voters of that neighborhood
10:38 pm
consumers of government service and taxpayers. that group is not particularly well-organized. we try to piggyback our needs in the back of more well organized groups. there is a difference in our positions although subtle it has an impact on the outcome of services. i appreciate the discussion about the thirteenth amendment; there was a long period in history without an amendment of the constitution at that time; there was a divergence between provision of service and the needs of the time. we are in a similar time now. you have the louis armstrong airport, jfk. what happened to the george w.
10:39 pm
bush sewage treatment plant? >> next speaker. good evening ladies and gentlemen and the world it's almost like hollywood. i'm going to start my own television show, city hall. it's not silly. a lot of things going city hall, racism, discrimination, a lot of things. they even draw big -- here at city hall. right now i'm trying to get to something serious. i want to thank the new supervisors, particularly the supervisor of this district. i'm here to make a notice to the city, the world that we here in san francisco, the african-american black

negroes are in a state of emergency. we are in a state of emergency because our population has gone down. district 5, 10, 6, which have a lot of the african-americans in there, i see them coming together bringing this issue to the fore. someone like myself files an injunction to find out what the problem is that city hall. you are not paying attention to something they study for many years. you admit that you are doing it. you have the mayor creating another monster without the community participation, without really seeing what happens to district 5. i know our supervisors will bring that up. she is also involved with the migration.
10:41 pm
you did not know that. she brought it to mayor newsom to do a study. that's all the time of got? thank you. >> thank you next speaker. >> (video playing)

10:43 pm

10:44 pm
are you going to support child porn? put your money where your mouth is. next california, you know it is spelled california. is coming to san francisco? only you know the answer. the last headline in the chronicle, sf scientist resigns after faking data. truth is very elusive in san francisco. sooner or later people that lie will pay the ultimate price. lance armstrong, even i loved you. he disappointed me.
10:45 pm
you proved me right. >> thanks next speaker. >> if you could good please pull the microphone. i'm a mother who lost a child to homicide. (video) it is one thing to anticipate a death because of old age or sickness. what another to experience a sudden violent death of loved one. 68 homicides last year.
10:46 pm
that is what mothers are left with every year. (shots fired) >> since 2004, san francisco has experienced an unprecedented number of homicides. (sirens) 60% of the homicide victims are people of color.
10:47 pm
their loved ones, living in neighborhoods of scarcity and elect must deal with personal strategy what are the same time facing the violence -- >> thank you very much. let's hear from our next speaker. >> next speaker please. >> am i able to put this up? >> yes. >> jesus said my judgment is true for i am not alone. i am the father that sent me. the testimony of two men, true,
10:48 pm
deuteronomy. at the mouth of two witnesses or three witnesses, he worthy of death will be put to death but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death. found in john chapter 8 by the way. i am want to bear witness of myself and the father that sent me bears witness of me. do you realize what jesus is doing here? in the fifth chapter he said search the scriptures for in them you think you have eternal life. he said, there has never been one born of non-virgins as great as john the baptist. he is talking of himself because at the end of the eleventh chapter of matthew he said i am meek and lowly in heart.
10:49 pm
i am least in the kingdom of heaven. jesus christ he who speaks of himself seeks his own glory. jesus christ in a class all by himself. when he races the data that might happen november 10, 1335 days into the new sabbatical cycle. promoting homosexuals, which is wicked and evil, not only homosexuals, child molesters, all the unsaved. >> thank you very much. thank you. let's hear from the next speaker.

10:55 pm
>> we came to seven straight about 10 years ago. -- 7th street about 10 years ago. the environment is huge. it is stronger than willpower. surrounding yourself with artists, being in a culture where artists are driving, and where a huge amount of them is a healthy environment. >> you are making it safer.
10:56 pm
push, push. that is better. when i start thinking, i see it actually -- sometimes, i do not see it, but when i do, it is usually from the inside out. it is like watching something being spawned. you go in, and you begin to work, excavate, play with the dancers, and then things began to emerge. you may have a plan that this is what i want to create. here are the ideas i want to play with, but then, you go into the room, and there maybe some fertile ideas that are becoming manifest that are more interesting than the idea you had initially set out to plan. so there has to be this openness for spontaneity. also, a sense that regardless of the deadline, that you have tons of time so the you can keep your
10:57 pm
creativity alive and not cut it off and just go into old habits. it is a lot like listening. really listening to watch what is going to emerge. i like this thing where you put your foot on his back. let's keep it. were your mind is is how you build your life. if you put it in steel or in failure, it works. that works. it is a commitment. for most artists, it is a vacation and a life that they have committed themselves to. there is this notion that artists continue to do their work because of some kind of the external financial support. if that was taken away, artists would still do their art. it is not like there is a
10:58 pm
prerequisite for these things to happen or i will not do it. how could that be? it is the relationship that you have committed to. it is the vocation. no matter how difficult it gets, you are going to need to produce your art. whether it is a large scale or very small scale. the need to create is going to happen, and you are going to have to fulfill it because that is your life.
